# In need of a formula for days to complete task

Options

I am needing a formula to calculate the number of days to complete a task in a project. Also I need the average for that date divided by the number of employees.

There's a few ways you probably could do it:

=[due date]@row - today()

That will give you how many days are left until the due date hits.

As for the average number of employees for the date, would something like this work?

=count(employees) / (days until due date)

Without seeing your sheet, that's probably a very generic way to get to the answers your looking for. If you do have a screenshot of your sheet, that might help get some more specifics. Hope it helps!
